Do you know the major component on which all living matter survives? Water! The living cells of every plant, animal, and human are dependent upon that one essential element for their healthy existence.
David said, “There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High,” (Ps. 46:4 NKJV) and this “river of God is full of water.” (Ps. 65:9 NLKV)
As necessary as it is for our body to be nourished with water to stay healthy, it is even more necessary for our spirit and soul to be filled with the Living Waters of the Lord to stay spiritually healthy.
Near the end of the book of Revelation, John describes these waters as the “pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, coming forth out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.” (Rev. 22:1 NKJV) Living Waters from the throne, a continuous flow from God, the Fountain of Life.
When your soul is parched from the incessant trials of life, when you’re bone tired from your dusty, wilderness journey, and your bucket of life is empty, when you long to hear the words of comfort and feel the Lord’s presence, do you know where to go to refill your bucket, to quench your spiritually shriveled soul, to regain your strength?
Do you ask yourself as the woman at the well asked Jesus, “So how are you going to get this ‘living water’?” (John 4:11Msg)
All your springs of peace, comfort, joy, grace, and all else you need are in God. Therefore, drink of that Living Water, the “water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14 NKJV)
That Fountain of Life is within you and is greater than your circumstances, greater than your depression, greater than your grief, greater than your debt, greater than any circumstances, greater than you yourself.
The Lord says to you, “Come, leave the rushing highways of your anxieties and rest in Me. Exchange the roar of the waves of life for the Still Small Voice, found only in the quietness of stilled waters. Come, dip you cup into the banks of the Living Waters of My refreshment and taste their sweetness.
“Let My peace flow through you as those Living Waters out of the Rock. Let My Spirit bubble up within you and work in you a new thing. Come, rest with Me, and I will restore your soul and pour out the blessings of My peace and joy.”
God has given us His restorative Living Waters, as the fountain of forgiveness, the reservoir of peace and joy. It is always there, just waiting for us to refill our spirit and soul!
“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said,out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”John 7:37-38 NKJV
The river of God is full of water. Drink to your heart’s delight!

Beautiful, Lynn! I felt the calm and refreshing waters pour over me as I read. Thank you for sharing!
Oh, Ellen, that sooo blesses me! Thank you so much for that. Blessings to you! 😀
Wow Lynn That was Really Annointed,as a Pastor and singer I see and hear as wellas read a lot, I can tell when it’s lead by The Spirit of God.
Oh, my! Thank you so much! I deeply appreciate your kind words. Such a blessing! Blessings to you! 😀
I am so thankful for His provision. Thank you for this encouraging word today, Lynn.
Oh, so thankful as well, Lyli! Thank you, sweetie, for your kind words. Bless you! 😀
Lynn, thank you so much for sharing. Water! Ah . . . nothing like water really quenches thirst when we are dry . . . not tea (my passion), coffee, soda . . . nothing quenches like water. And nothing quenches spiritual thirst, as you so rightly point out, like Jesus. In fact, He is the *only* One who does. One of my favorite Scriptures is Isaiah 55:1: “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.” There is no cost in partaking of Jesus. He paid it all, so we might freely come to Him. Thank you for this reminder. And because Jesus is the only One who can quench our spiritual thirst, I’m reminded not to drink from polluted springs. Thank you for such a refreshing post!
Lynn (also without an “e”! 🙂 )
Oh, yes, Lynn (without the *e* 😉 )! I love that verse as well. For some reason, the polluted springs reminded me of the old western movies when a rider would come across a poisoned waterhole. Not every one was marked! Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I deeply appreciate it. Bless you! 😀
Thank you Lynn. God’s fountain never runs dry. Thanks be to God.
Another Lynn with no *e*! 😉 Thanks so much, Lynn. God’s well has no bottom! So appreciate your comment. Bless you! 😀
Beautiful and encouraging post, Lynn! I could drink of those Scriptures all day long as they fill me up spiritually!
Oh, yes, Janis! I so agree. I deeply appreciate your taking time to leave me a comment. Thank you so much! 😀

Earl, bless your heart! I don’t know where you live but I’m surprised none of the churches there are caring for others. Thank you for commenting. Keep at it. I know the Lord will bless you in your efforts to serve Him by serving others. Pray for the Lord to send laborers into the field. Be encouraged! The Lord sees your heart and your work. Praying for you.
